Taking Nikon’s Creative Lighting System to the next level, the SB-5000 AF Speedlight to the photographer’s arsenal. It offers both traditional optical wireless control and powerful new radio control, able to be used as a Master Flash to control up to six groups of remote flashes, without the need for line of sight, and create complex lighting systems (when paired with Nikon’s D5, WR-A10 and WR-R10, available separately). Its built-in cooling system also means it can fire more than 100 consecutive shots at full output.
Designed for fast shooting at weddings, commercial shoots or other fast-paced events, the SB-5000 is small, portable and easy to use, with streamlined access to frequently used functions, and options can also be selected via the camera menu if you’re using Nikon’s N5 or D500 cameras. One of the fastest, most reliable and most powerful flashes on the market, this is a hugely useful tool for all Nikon users, from professionals to passionate amateurs.

Light without limits - New radio controlled communication
The SB-5000 AF Speedlight introduces powerful radio control Advanced Wireless Lighting (AWL) communication to Nikon's innovative Creative Lighting System for exciting lighting possibilities. When used with a compatible Nikon DSLR** with the optional WR-A10 (Wireless Remote Adapter) when attached to D5 and WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller (transceiver), you can control up to 6 groups (A/B/C/D/E/F) of SB-5000 AF Speedlight behind obstacles, around corners, in bright sunlight—even in different rooms—up to 98 feet away. Of course, the SB-5000 AF Speedlight also integrates seamlessly with Nikon's optical wireless Speedlights and DSLRs. **Compatible with the D5 and D500
Nonstop performance - World's first hot-shoe mount flash cooling system‡
For studio, wedding, event and action photographers, continuous shooting is the name of the game. The SB-5000 AF Speedlight can handle more than 100 consecutive firings at full output without overheating, thanks to an innovative built-in cooling system and a brilliant heat-shedding design. For TTL shooters, this means a new level of lighting control while capturing decisive moments. Great shots don't wait for a flash to be ready, and neither should you. ‡ As of January 5, 2016
Smaller and easier to operate
Designed for photographers who rely on portable lighting, the SB-5000 AF Speedlight is smaller and easier to use. It has a smaller footprint and provides streamlined access to frequently used functions such as Flash Mode, Zoom Head Position and Flash Compensation Value. Like a DSLR camera, the SB-5000 AF Speedlight has an “Info” button for quick access to your favorite settings. For more fluid operation when using radio control, you can adjust settings right from a compatible camera's*** menu. ***Compatible with the D5 and D500
Maximum compatibility - Part of the Nikon Creative Lighting System
In addition to the new radio control with compatible cameras, you can use the SB-5000 AF Speedlight on-camera as a Master Flash to control other remote Speedlights (up to 3 Groups: A/B/C and 4 channels), or use it off-camera wirelessly as a remote flash controlled by either your camera's built-in flash (compatible cameras), another Speedlight or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander. You can even mix optical wireless control (Groups A/B/C) with radio control (Groups D/E/F). For studio photographers, the SB-5000 AF Speedlight is equipped with Unified Flash Control and can be controlled from a personal computer using the optional Camera Control Pro 2 (Version 2.23 or later) software.
